Today I've been posting the #1 made Mickey Mouse Timepieces. This is one of the two variants of the first Mickey Mouse pocket watches. This is the long stem version and uses a "push-to-set" crown. These were produced for Disney by Ingersoll/Waterbury in the spring of 1933 and made their debut at the 1933 Chicago World Fair. The easiest way to identify a first issue is the linear numbers 5 & 7 on the dial, later issue pieces have smaller # 5 & 7 tucked up under Mickey's knees. Along with that the sub dial wouldn't have a marker arrow (this one does, but replacement part). All the 1933-37 Mickey pocket watch came with the embossed back cover.
Thanks for looking
